Club Organised Races

Macclesfield Harriers & A.C. (MH&AC) is a varied club with activity in Track & Field, Road Running, Fell Running and Cross Country. In addition to hosting Track & Field events the club organises several races each year.

The club has a strong belief in supporting the local community and currently donates all net profits (after costs) from each of these races to local charity -  we even openly show our race costings so that participants see exactly where the money goes!. MH&AC is one of the few clubs to do this.

The club races are shown below with links to more detail.

Macclesfield Half Marathon - usually held on the last Sunday in September, except this year, 2018, when it's being held on the 23rd September, which isn't the last Sunday as there's another Sunday on the 30th,. Glad we've cleared that up and thanks to Mr B J Pedantico for clarifying. We will have about 800-1000 participants -  a great atmosphere on a rural course

Macclesfield 5K - held on the same day as the Half Marathon

Langley 7 - usually the first Saturday in November (a hilly road race of ~7 miles with great cakes!)

Forest 5 - a hilly trail/fell race around Macclesfield Forest usually held in mid July

Tegg's Nose Fell Race - this race is part of the annual Sheepdog trials

Why not come along to try one of our races!
